We can see Dilip Joshi as Bhola Prasad who is genuinely innocent by his face. A man who thinks he got the girl of dreams when Salman Khan’s friend Rita accidentally falls in his arms. The way Dilip Joshi blushes while holding Rita makes the scene really funny and this is from where the chase of Bhola Ram behind Rita begins during the whole marriage function.

In this film, he played a small-time gangster named Sapney, Johnny Lever’s henchman. He did an absolutely great pairing with Johnny Lever that made the audience laugh numerous times.
